MixMode Recognized by CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards Program for Overall Network Security Solution of the Year

Santa Barbara, California – October 6, 2021 – MixMode, the leader in AI-based real-time anomaly detection for cybersecurity, has been named the winner of the “Global Network Security Solution of the Year” award in the 2021 CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards program hosted by CyberSecurity Breakthrough. CyberSecurity Breakthrough is a leading independent business intelligence organization that recognizes the best companies, technologies and products in the global information security market.

“We are honored to be recognized as the Best Network Security Solution by the Cybersecurity Breakthrough Awards,” said John Keister, CEO of MixMode. “MixMode’s unique innovation in self-learning AI has enabled us to provide the world’s best security teams with faster and more effective tools to protect their business against the threats of today and tomorrow. “

Spending on cybersecurity has increased every year for the past decade, but over the past 5 years, successful cyberattacks have increased by more than 600%. Legacy security platforms have failed to protect enterprise networks across the globe due to their constant need for human training, monitoring, and the rules-based solutions they use.

This leaves SOC teams two steps away from their attackers and only able to identify attacks that have occurred in the past and vulnerable to unsigned threats. MixMode requires no written rules to operate using contextual AI to alert security teams faster and with better accuracy to zero-day attacks.

The mission of the CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards is to recognize innovation, hard work and success in a range of information security categories, including cloud security, threat detection, risk management, prevention fraud, mobile security, email security and more. This year’s program attracted over 4,000 nominations from over 20 different countries around the world.


MixMode is a cybersecurity platform powered by cloud-native, self-learning AI with next-generation anomaly detection and prediction capabilities. MixMode ingests and monitors high-data environments (e.g., cloud, enterprise, 5G) in real time to uncover zero-day unsigned threats and attacks, including those from ransomware, blockchain attacks Supply and Insider Threats on the Zero Trust Architecture. MixMode can be used in the cloud, edge, or on-premises to deliver increased productivity and efficiency for environments with IT, OT, ICS, and IoT devices.

MixMode’s platform is powered by its patented self-supervising AI, which includes contextual reasoning as to why threats are highlighted for investigation. This AI is unique in that it requires no rules, no information flow, and no historical training data to operate, thus avoiding the biases and blind spots that plague legacy systems. MixMode AI is capable of consuming many large data streams at high speed for real-time processing and is the only third-wave AI defined by DARPA for cybersecurity.
